Being a teacher means we spend a few days during the year dressed up!  But, if you can sew……you can make yourself an outfit! 

I used Simplicity 1692 to make a red top to go with my red trousers.

So I could look like this……

Yes, I was Thing 1 from The Cat in the Hat… Because I am one of two Deputy Heads  at our schooL.

The children kept asking me who was Thing 2, and when I suggested they guess they knew straight away who it would be! 

We had an amazing day as Willy Wonka came to visit! 

I ❤️️Willy Wonka!

We had quite a few Oompa Loompas around the place! Some seemed to get more orange as the day went on! 

We had a great day and if there are any teachers reading this and need a fantastic treat for your school…Histrionics is fantastic! The best assemblies I have ever seen! 

Anyway, back to the blouse. I used a red linen and some chunky buttons. More details here and close ups! 

Also a tutorial type post about making the button loops here.

Pattern: Simplicity 1692

Fabric: 1.5 m of red linen.

Wonka Factor: 1010 . It is perfect for the Thing 1 look! I quite like the idea of another for the Summer! Perhaps in a Tilda available here
